BURLINGTON, NC – On Sunday, February 10, 2019 the Angel of the Lord carried home our beloved Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin, Great Uncle, and Great Nephew to eternal rest.

SIDNEY MALCOM BRITT was born on Friday, June 4, 1954 to his namesake the late Sidney Davis Britt and Josie Mae Futrell Britt of Murfreesboro, North Carolina. Sidney was called by his middle name “Malcom” by his immediate family and affectionately known at his Alamance House Residence in Burlington, North Carolina as “Uncle Malcom”.

SIDNEY was baptized at an early age by the late Reverend J.H. Dixon at Parker’s Grove Baptist Church. Under his parents’ guidance, he fully participated in church activities and remained active until his illness.

SIDNEY graduated from Murfreesboro High School in 1972, where he proudly served as junior and senior class president, played on the football team, and participated in various extracurricular activities. Sidney would go on to graduate Cum Laude from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting. Sidney parlayed his leadership skills to serve as freshmen class president and he became a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

SIDNEY benefitted from several internships during his four years at NCA&T and upon graduation he became an employee of Exxon Corporation, now known as Exxon Mobil Corporation. Sidney would ultimately transition to long term disability.

SIDNEY was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and nephew who endured many challenging years without complaint. He remained quick-witted and smart throughout the years. He loved spending time with family and he loved a good seafood dinner; his favorite restaurant was Red Lobster. Sidney enjoyed music (especially Motown songs) and he loved sports–he could carry a conversation about these pastimes with the best of them.

SIDNEY MALCOM BRITT leaves to cherish his memory four loving siblings: Brenda McEachern (Hector) of Greensboro, NC; Linda Gill (late David Gill Sr.) of Wake Forest, NC; Jewel Rascoe (Charles) of Ashburn, VA; William Calvin Britt (Connie) of Sterling, VA; and god sister, Muriel Parker of Charlotte, NC. He leaves ten nieces and nephews who adored their “Uncle Malcom”: Todd (Monique); Natashia (Dwight); Dorian (fiancée Stacy); Brandon (Alexia); David Jr. (Kendra); Scott (Meredith); Tiffini, Krystal, Arlisa, and Sidney Calvin (his namesake). Sidney also leaves two special aunts: Catherine Britt of Murfreesboro, NC and Jean Britt of Newport News, VA, along with a host of relatives and friends.

A celebration of Sidney’s life was held on Saturday, February 16 at Parker’s Grove Baptist Church in Mapleton, (Murfreesboro), NC.
